Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m coming at you with yet another book review. One of my favorite things about being back in university is the fact that I get to read so many new books, some I’d probably never pick up if I were book shopping on any ordinary day.
Madame Bovary, By: Flaubert Gustave is the story of a young lady, Emma, who is trying to figure it all out. Being stuck in a marriage she is unsure about, and even more unsure about herself, we the readers get insight to what it is she is constantly thinking about, from trouble to adventure. The book takes place in France during the mid-1800’s. While only discussing the lovely Paris, it tends to be set in smaller towns for example, Yonville. At times, I fell in love with Emma and at others, I wanted her to get a dose of reality. The book has quick chapters which I tend to like, mentally it makes the book go much quicker and at more ease. This book is one I thoroughly enjoyed and feel it would be a great addition to any bookshelf.
I hope you all enjoyed and please be sure to let me know in the comments if you had ever read this, what were your thoughts? I tend to enjoy anything that had to with France and women empowerment.
Quote of the Day:
“Love, Emma felt, ought to come at once, with great thunderclaps and flashes of lightning; it was like a storm bursting upon life from the sky, uprooting it, overwhelming the will and sweeping the heart into the abyss. It did not occur to her that the rain forms puddles on a flat roof when drainpipes are clogged, and she would have continued to feel secure if she had not suddenly discovered a crack in the wall”.
